    And that should be enough to puke on for Disney traditionalists like us.

    And stop doing my Ronald Reagan impression on the subject of that astrosity known as Mickey's Sorcerer's Hat at Disney Hollywood Studios, please!

    And besides, those comments should be pointed at Bob Iger and Anne Sweeney.

    Mipcom Jr. in tune with 'Musical'

    'High School' hits a high note at confab

    Disney-ABC Intl. Television has sold hit tuner
    'High School Musical 2' to broadcasters in more than 40 countries.

    Nature conservationism, live-action romance and Islamic-friendly animation were among the highlights at this year's two-day Mipcom Jr., which wrapped Sunday with the announcement of major deals for Disney's "High School Musical 2."

    Disney-ABC Intl. Television sold the hit tuner ahead of the main Mipcom mart, which kicks off today to broadcasters in more than 40 countries, including the BBC in the U.K., RTI in Italy, ProSieben in Germany, M6 in France, RTE in Ireland, Russia's Channel 1, SABC in South Africa, CCTV6 in China, Australia's Seven, TVNZ in New Zealand and Studio 23 in the Philippines.

    On the receiving end, Germany's Super RTL, co-owned by Disney and RTL, picked up "Famous Five -- On the Case," Marathon Intl.'s animated series based on British writer Enid Blyton's successful children's books, plus the French distrib's "Monster Buster Club," a CGI series about kids who protect the local town from aliens.
    While animation remains an integral part of Super RTL's programming, Frank Dietz, the channel's head of acquisitions and co-productions, said there was growing interest among young auds for live programming, as shown by the web's success with Disney shows "Hannah Montana"and "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody."

    Disney Channel Worldwide prexy Rich Ross echoed that sentiment, saying in his keynote address that young auds around the globe were embracing live-action fare including the "High School Musical" franchise and "Hannah Montana."

    "We thought it would bring a contemporary look to Disney," Ross said of the decision to beef up live action programming at the web. "We have shown now that live action is what talks to you -- it speaks to you about your life, about your family."

    Disney was among 315 sellers represented at Mipcom Jr. While that figure remained unchanged over 2006, the mart did see a slight increase in the number of buyers to 465. The number of programs on offer dropped 2% to 919, while the number of screenings was up nearly 7% to 45,747.
